.....
Gentlemen, this time last year we were fighting mosquitoes in swamps... accepting paltry gifts and half starving. But now, we stand knocking at the very door of the great emperor Moctezuma. We shall meet His Majesty face to face, have done with ambassadors and specks of gold. This, gentlemen, is just the beginning. De Vargas, order the first detachment ready to move forward. - Yes, sir. - Gentlemen, be ready to march. Yes, sir. I charge you, put this greed for gold out of your hearts. Open your eyes to what lies before you. Go forward not as conquerors, but as men of God! The sun shines here as fair as in Spain. Let it shine on all men alike. Here there shall be neither master nor slave... no looking up nor looking down... but here all men shall be equal, according to God's plan. The Lord has indeed blessed this land. In its richness it may yet outvalue all the gold of Moctezuma. And in God's own time... it will blossom forth under the cross of Christianity... a haven for the weak, a refuge for the strong... with all the good of the Old World and none of its ills. Before this venture is concluded, gentlemen... we will taste the joys of victory... or the bitterness of defeat. Many will die in the days that lie ahead... but those who survive will one day return to their homeland... rich in wisdom and gold, exonerated by His Majesty... and forever secure in the knowledge... that they have participated in the opening of a new world.

Smash Mouth "Hot"

This was used as anthem for a rather good (considering the source) animated film "Hot Wheels: World Race." Yes, it was made by and for Mattel (the toy company) but the animation was at least better than, say, your average AE game product. Which is all the more impressive considering the movie was made something like 15 years ago.

Long ago when renting VHS movies was a thing (early 90s) I brought home The Finest Hour - didn't much like the movie but remembered this tune, searched for it a couple of times but only recently found it on youtube.

I love threads like this. I could listen to Star Wars and Mag 7 all day long.

This is one of the most incredible themes ever composed. It perfectly conjures up feelings of struggle, valor, hope, weariness and longing for home.



I loved this theme song, and your summation of its theme is spot on IMHO.

This song and the musical score from this movie always get me.
